What’s better than an evening fashion show with bubbles, and exclusive shopping discounts? Enjoying all of the above while raising money for a brilliant charity, of course!
Each year, we host a fashion evening for our network of HR professionals to enjoy and this years event took place on Thursday 17th May. We’re lucky to have the support of high end fashion retailer Hobbs, who kindly host our event after hours in their Winchester store, along with Clarins providing beauty advice and a selection of goodies for all of our guests to take home.
The Hobbs team styled nine ensembles to catwalk – three work, three casual and three occasion wear outfits – and each was available to purchase with exclusive discount, along with everything else on the shop floor – so splashing out was certainly encouraged! The Hobbs team, along with our dedicated team at HR Heads, were on hand to help out and offer fashion advice, and keep glasses topped up throughout the evening. We held a raffle for the prize of an £100 Hobbs voucher, and at the end of the night, Hobbs kindly donated 10% of the total revenue to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Our 2018 fashion show raised £631 for Macmillan – taking our total raised this year to over £1,600 – so we’re on track to meet our £3,000 fundraising goal!
